Verizon Communications, part owner of Verizon Wireless, said this week they would like to increase their stake in the wireless arm. Vodafone, a major European carrier, currently owns 45% of the wireless venture. Vodafone could force Verizon to buy back all of its shares in VZW in the coming year for between $10 and 20 billion, however that is not the only way for Verizon to increase its stake.
